The troops “will not enforce immigration law,” and Brown who only committed the troops so he can accept federal Guard money.
Brown isn’t pleased to be in this position or admit that he caved to President Donald Trump’s request, which is why he made a list of ridiculous demands in exchange for committing troops
The Trump administration requested at least one thousand troops to cover all border states, so Brown only committing 400 is likely his way of showing his liberal base that he will stand up to Trump — sort of.
In his statement, Brown slammed the idea of securing the border and protecting the country from waves of illegal immigrants. He also rattled off a list of insane conditions for committing the troops.
“Here are the facts: there is no massive wave of migrants pouring into California. Overall immigrant apprehensions on the border last year were as low as they’ve been in nearly 50 years (and 85 percent of the apprehensions occurred outside of California),” the statement read.
Given California is currently harboring more than two million illegal aliens, perhaps a thousand illegals isn’t a big deal to Brown — but it is to many Americans.
In exchange for committing troops to secure the border, Brown made a list of ridiculous demands.
The troops will not be enforcing federal immigration laws, apprehending illegals, or helping to construct the new border wall or fencing.
The decision to send troops to protect the border came after Trump signed a proclamation last week.
The president’s proclamation will work with states to commit troops to secure the border from the uptick in illegals trying to enter the U.S.
While democrats like Brown refuse to secure the border, enforce the law, and comply with federal immigration officials, Trump is being forced to take matters into his own hands.
On one hand, it’s positive that Brown committed 400 troops to help secure the border. On the other, it’s absolutely pathetic that he is pretending he is in control by issuing demands in order for him to help protect the nation.
As Trump is doing everything he can to secure the border, democrats continue to prove they will prioritize illegals over American citizens.
